Day 35 – Monday of Holy Week, April 10
During Holy Week we will be focusing even more on Love. How much Jesus loved us and learning to love Him with all our hearts!
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Jesus, thank you for loving us so much! We ask you to give us hearts of love for you. Let nothing stand in the way of our love for you, Jesus!
St. Thérèse teaches us:
“O Jesus, I ask of You only Peace! ...Peace, and above all LOVE - love without bound or limit. Jesus, let me for Your sake die a martyr; give me martyrdom of soul or body. Ah! rather give me both the one and the other!” – Story of A Soul, Chapter VIII
Dear Father in heaven, we know that we are little souls. We may never have an opportunity to be a martyr for you. But we can die to ourselves every day when we love others instead of ourselves. Thank you for continuing to help us learn to love others more. Let us be martyrs for love – for You – every day!
Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory Be …
Merciful Father, in the name of Your sweet Jesus, of the Blessed Virgin and of the Saints, I pray that I be fired with Your spirit of love, and that You will grant me the grace to make You greatly loved. (The daily prayer that St. Thérèse taught us to say, adapted for our little lives.)
St. Thérèse, pray for us!
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
